Paper Abstract

The basic components of an optical inspection system are considered from the point of view of their ability to perform the functions of optical data acquisition and preprocessing. The influence of the type of illumination source used is discussed and the data rate capabilities of both parallel and serial methods of acquiring the information from the object under inspection are described. The methods of coherent and incoherent spatial filtering as applied to the inspection of certain types of objects is described.
